Meet Frank

Happy Monday crafters! I have a super fun treat bag for you today, in honor of Halloween.

Isn’t he just adorable. His head is a spring treat bag. His hair is 3 layers of Black Licorice card stock that has been embossed with the Beach Towel folder and highlighted with a white gel pen. The layers of hair are glued together and then glued to the very top edge of the bag and folded over. Eyes are punched and highlighted. His mouth is thin scraps in the shape of your choice. His scars are hand drawn and his eyes even have a little bloodshot in them.  This is filled with a treat for the host of the party my kids’ are attending on Tuesday.

Halloween Treats are so sweet!

With Halloween just a few days away, I thought it would be great fun to show you some of the many treats I have created this season. Today my project is playing along with the color challenge over at Fab Friday AND showing off a candy theme for the TGIF Challenge!

A fun candy tote made using the Envelop Punch board and featuring the Halloween Night DSP from Stampin' Up!

This adorable treat tote is all over Pinterest right now and I knew I had to try it out. I love anything 3-D and this was so quick and easy to make using the Envelope Punch Board. It will hold up to 5 Hershey Nuggets that have been wrapped in coordinating DSP.

Alaska Blog Hop – October


Welcome Hoppers to our #Alaska2018 Blog Hop. I am so glad that you are here. Today we have a boatload of ideas to inspire you by pairing products that work well together!

I have paired a fun gift bag from our annual catalog with a tag using products from our holiday catalog. I love that supplies from both of our current catalogs can work together hand in hand and gives us so many options for projects. I have been busy working on some adorable Halloween treats to give to our friends this year.


I love how versatile these petite cafe bags are. They can be dressed up in so many ways and they can hold candies, a cupcake or any kind of small gift. The bag has been decorated with the candy corns also used in the jar and some Halloween Night designer series paper. Then I stamped the jar and more candy corn from the Jar of Haunts stamp set and used the Everyday Jar framelits to cut it out. The gold clip on the top is a really fun way to hold it all together.

Thank you so much for hopping with us. Be sure to stop by every blog (you are at Jen Guarino) to see what others have paired together. Please leave us some love in the form of a comment. You can also subscribe so that you never miss another post!

Haunting home decor

Happy Friday friends! I cannot believe how fast this month is going. I swear it feels like it was just the 4th of July. Today over at SSInk we are sharing some 3-D creations and I have a fun home decor piece for you.


I made this piece with my friend Lynnette in mind. Halloween is her favorite holiday and she loves to host an event this time of year. I thought this would be a fun display for her party. The Big Shot and our exclusive thinlits made this so easy! Our designer series paper is so useful for cards and projects, as you can see here.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you will subscribe to the posts so that you never miss another great project.

Halloween Treats

Happy Tuesday everyone! I have an adorable treat holder to share with you today. I don’t normally craft a lot for this holiday but this year the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper was too cute and I knew I wanted to ordert it. I am so excited to give these to some very special kids this weekend.
These cute treat holders are made using the new Pillow Box framelit in the Holiday catalog and I think they are adorable. It is the perfect size to hold a few treats. 
The boxes were crafted out of the paper and then decorated with the Home & Hearth window framelit, a punch art ghosts and some small pumpkins as an accent. I think the kids are going to love these!
I hope you are inspired by this fun project! Let me know you were here by leaving me some love in the form of a comment. You can subscribe to the blog and never miss another post!
